My name is Melissa im 34 and live in PA. I am currently dealing with DJD, and am still searching for a program that works for me as far as pain is concerned. I am a research assistant at a hospital, and in the last month have been to the ER and my PC doctor and my Ortho DR 8 or 9 times. I work full time and by the time I get home im in tears.
Waiting and waiting to get into pain management, and for them to change my meds. I am currently taking naprosyn 500 twice a day. I have stopped taking Vicodine as they were not working. When the pain gets over a 7 i go to the ER as my Drs office hours dont meet up often with my work hours. sometimes what they give me in the ER is helpful...sometimes not.
endlessly hopeful that something works soon so I can get back to being a active participant in my own life with my kids =/
I mostly smile a lot at work and try to walk when it gets bad, and then cry a lot at home once im in bed.
no actual questions right now, but there ya go
me in a nutshell. love all the information on this site.
Sincerely, The Book
